AVG grows trans-Tasman reseller base

AVG grows trans-Tasman reseller base

Security vendor AVG has strengthened its Australian-based channel team, as its partner numbers on both sides of the Tasman are on the rise.

Former channel account manager James Caldwell has been promoted to channel manager, replacing Tim Dawson who has become business innovation manager.

Michael Chapman, a recent business graduate of Australia’s Monash University, has been recruited as reseller account manager to support Caldwell.

Although it has no separate numbers for New Zealand, Caldwell says AVG’s reseller numbers for Australia and New Zealand have climbed 33 percent in the past six months to 1600, and it has had a “fairly strong recruitment drive”.

“We expect that to progress at a similar rate and hopefully we’ll get past that 2000 mark soon.”

AVG’s product offering is particularly strong at the moment with the release of AVG 8.0, says Caldwell, and the release represents a chance to target the home office and small and medium business markets.

Caldwell has previously worked for IBM and Telstra in Australia, starting at AVG early in 2007.
